Last update: 14 April, 2021

Besides your bedroom and bathroom, you use your kitchen a lot. Probably more often than you realize, especially when you’re home more. You use this space to prepare quick snacks and big meals for you and your family. So let’s look at how to make the most of your kitchen.

There’s no such thing as a small kitchen, only a poorly arranged one. After reading these tips, you’ll realize that the size doesn’t matter, it’s how you make the best use of your space.

Some tips to get more out of your kitchen

Carefully choose the colors for your kitchen walls, floors, and fixtures.

1. Colors

Choosing the right colors for the walls, floors, and fixtures will give your kitchen more visual impact and brighten it up. Opt for colors that reflect light, such as white, yellow, or neutral colors. Also, they’ll help you keep your kitchen in pristine condition.

2. Functionality above all

Your kitchen should look beautiful, but it must be functional as well. If you don’t have much space but want to make the most of every inch, add folding furniture. For example, folding tables from IKEA are a great option.

Removable accessories are another option, such as a food cutting board that you can easily store away when you don’t need it.

3. Use of space

Thanks to custom designs, you can combine open shelves to optimize what space you already have. Also, you can replace your fancy kitchen ornaments with more practical items such as glass jars to store beans, rice, pasta, etc.

4. Open concept

How many times have you dreamed of having an open-plan kitchen? In addition to being a trend for years, this style gives you space to add tables, shelves, and hooks for your utensils. If your home lacks adequate lighting, this design is key to providing an abundance of natural light.

5. A breakfast bar

Install a breakfast bar, either using high countertops or an island. Add shelves and drawers in the lower part to store your pots, pans, and cutlery.

6. Cabinets

More than likely, when you clear out your kitchen, you’ll find small appliances, bowls, and other knickknacks you don’t use. To keep them stored away and organized, put them in cabinets with louvered or hinged doors.

7. Consider the distribution

Every kitchen has characteristics that make it unique. Know the shape of your kitchen when considering the distribution. Rectangular or elongated kitchens need an L-shaped distribution, while square ones need a U-shaped distribution.

If your kitchen is narrow, only use one side to minimize clutter. Place a bar or table on the empty side to give you more space.

In conclusion, you can get more out of your kitchen with a little planning. Revisit your current plan and decide what type of appliances you need. Use bright colors and keep everything organized. If you follow our tips, you’ll be on the right track!
